It is our belief in Christ Chapel that it is up to the Church to pray God’s will into the earth because Jesus says: “I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of heaven”. (Matthew 16:18-19). Jesus has given us the authority to release His will on earth through prayer.
“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease”. Gen 8: 22
“Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.” Phil. 4: 15
In our time, we hear about giving, but nobody is taking the time to talk about how to receive. God is not like that He is concerned about the giving and the receiving. Anyone who is partaking in seed sowing must also partake in harvesting. That does not mean that one makes the getting or the receiving the motive but one need to know, be concerned about it and know how to receive also.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” Gal. 6:7 – anyone who is sowing seed and who does not believe in receiving a harvest is trying to mock God. It is a mockery of God. Every financial seed you have sown, the harvest is still hanging; there is no harvest that is lost, there are only harvests that are pending.
“Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days. Give a portion to seven, and also to eight…If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth…” Ecc.11:1-3
Some of us read this last part to mean some will prosper and some will not prosper, No! It says keep sowing because you don’t know whether that seed you want to sow at that time is the one that will make the cloud to empty itself.
How does this harvest come?
Malachi 3: 10 “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse…prove me now…if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it”..
“The blessing of The Lord, it maketh rich and it added no sorrow unto it…” Prov. 10:22
Whatever it is that God pours into your life what it does is that it makes you rich. God does pour it out; you access it because you are a child of God, a believer, a tither. The gate way is open in life; you open it by your tithe.
Joshua 1:8 “…For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely…”
What enables you to make riches happen is that God pours wisdom into your life. Wisdom is what makes riches happen.
God pours wisdom into your life so that you can make use of that wisdom and in making use of that wisdom you make riches to happen for you. God pours His wisdom into your life through the avenue of tongues (1Cor 2:7 ;1Cor 14:2 ) When you are praying in tongues, your spirit man is searching out the mind of God for you on that matter in that situation, and as He searches out the mind of God and gets to it, He locks into that thing and the next thing He wants to do is transform that thing that He has locked into and brings it up to your mind in form of thoughts. If you don’t have His word in You, it becomes a bit difficult for the spirit to translate to your mind what he has locked into as he searches out because the Spirit of God speaks the language of His word. So, you need to renew your mind in order to open your heart to that wisdom of God which will make riches happen for you.
